5.0 out of 5 stars some niggles..., 20 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Small, quiet, fast, great storage. However, I find the software on it isn't that great. it doesn't really have 1tb storage (but then again nor do any other brands that claim that on their 1tb drives). The shell looks good, but gets scratched easily. It also takes up quite a lot of power from a laptop, and if you have a couple of things already in you usb drives, the drive just won't work. I tried it on someone's laptop and it didn't work unless the laptop was plugged into the mains. Also a bit tricky to get working on macs, and I think if I dropped it once from a small distance it probably wouldn't survive. Gets warm after a while, but not too bad.
Overall very good, but look after it... also a little bit pricey, but probably worth it for the size. Some more colours would be nice as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars protective!, 20 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good protective cover. I use it for my 22' frame mountainbike, and it fits around nicely. Good elastic at the bottoms, big enough for all push bikes, quite resilient waterproof material, air vent on the top, and the dark blue doesn't draw much attention to thieves. Comes with a bag to fold it up in. Worth the little bit extra cash compared to cheaper covers.

4.0 out of 5 stars some niggles..., 20 May 2010
The prints are decent, and the build is good enough (lots of plastic though). The scanner is what impressed me the most for this price. The epson scanner software is very good, and lets you tailor the quality/layout/colours etc. Also quite fast in response times. Only thing is the card reader... it does print jpegs direct, sometimes, if the photo is right for it I suppose. It does not print other files straight from the card at all though which is a bit limited. Also quite noisy when in action, and the buttons on it are a bit fiddly to use at times.
Altogether very good value though. Epson cartridges aren't cheap, but there are certain supermarket own brands for half the price...


Archos 605 40GB WiFi Multimedia Player
Archos 605 40GB WiFi Multimedia Player

4.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, but music is bad, 20 May 2010
Really great little machine. The screen is brilliant, and just about big enough to watch quite comfortably without your eye strain. The file formats you can use is great, plays most things. The large storage is brilliant, and acts like an external hard drive for your laptop for any files. I got the DVR addon for the tv, and it records very well from any tv/dvd source... although not with the best quality, unless you make the file size huge. Also, the battery is very short lived, it dies after about one longish movie. The other thing is the music sound... a bit rubbish, doesn't compare to a decent mp3 player. The speaker on it is useful, but not loud... and the supplied headphones are cheap and useless.
Altogether a great device, and very good for the new price. Also without equals for a movie oriented pmp.

4.0 out of 5 stars sharp enough, 20 May 2010
Altogether a decent frame. Bought an earlier phillips, which was not so great, but this is much improved. The resolution is high enough, with good colour and brightness. The card slots are very useful. You can put a digital clock on the screen if you want. The build is solid and quite classy to look at, not too plasticky. At the price, it's a good option, and a great gift. Recommended.


No Title Available

2.0 out of 5 stars ok..., 20 May 2010
Mediocre warm weather xc gloves,not great. There's no velcro to tighten them around the wrist, only elastic. If your handlebars are already very grippy, the material on the palm wears away on them very quickly. There's no gel padding, and if you've got fat fingers forget it. I've got black and brown, which look quite boring. On the upside though, lots of ventilation.
For the price, you can do better...

5.0 out of 5 stars got the right room?, 20 May 2010
Really great, clever bit of kit. Once set up correctly, the surround effect really is brilliant from the numerous speakers bouncing off the walls. Very loud, lots of bass, customisable sounds, decent selection of inputs/outputs including HDMI for high quality sound. With the press of a button you can localise the sound to one part of a big room, so you don't annoy other people. Can even adapt to different surfaces, so if you have curtains on one wall the sound will still bounce off it.
Only thing is it really needs to be near the middle of the wall to work best, as I found in a corner the surround doesn't work too well, and I'd imagine in a non-rectangular room it might not be so great. Also looks a bit 'boxy' compared to the new slimline versions, but then again is a lot cheaper. Does it compare to a 'proper' surround set up? Yep, but only if set up just right (with the aid of the colossal manual), and gets extra points for not having cables strewn all over the room.


The Flexifoil Book of Power Kiting
The Flexifoil Book of Power Kiting
by Jeremy Boyce
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really a manual, 20 May 2010
Nice looking book with lots of pretty pictures. Good for your coffee table, but if you're looking for a manual it's quite limited. It does cover some basics if you're completely new to the sport, such as laying out and setting up, but for intermediate kiters upwards, not that useful. Also a bit pricey for what it is in my opinion...

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, 11 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good value, good quality made and efficient burning every time, no disc is a cropper, and fast burning speeds. Only thing is the blue, which makes it very hard to read anything you might write on it with a marker. You can purchase luminous marker pens apparently...


City Of Men (TV Series) [DVD] [2004]
City Of Men (TV Series) [DVD] [2004]
Dvd ~ Darlan Cunha
Offered by Jasuli
Price: £4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential viewing, 11 Feb 2010
This really is fantastic tv viewing. The characters are likeable, the setting is vibrant and engrossing. Each episode has a focus on one aspect of their exciting lives in the favelas. The whole series has an upbeat energy, and is just utterly compelling. The only downsides are that each episode just seems too short, and at times they speak so fast that it takes full concentration to read the subtitles rapidly and watch all the fast paced action at the same time. Overall, better than the city of God and a must have dvd.
